If you don't have a fuel programmer e.g. Power Commander, etc., I'd start with the basics first. Is your idle speed set at around 1200-1300 RPM? If your bike has over 16,000 miles, make sure to check valve clearances, then set the throttle position sensor, and finally balance the throttle bodies. Also make sure your air filter is clean and intact. If your issues persist, excess oil may be getting into the combustion chambers which would then warrant investigation as to why, i.e. compression/leak down test, etc. Good luck mate!

Do the balance first, as chnages to the balance can alter the TPS (pretty sure anyway).....
